Exciting Events with Winter Bites – Week full of great food, music and art!

January 4, 2010

Black Kettle Bistro is excited to announce its participation in Winter Bites.  We are taking the culinary festival one step further and incorporating some of Windsor’s finest artistic talents to create not only a great culinary experience but a great taste of the Windsor arts & music scene.  Each night we will be hosting a special guest artist or musician.  It will be a special small and intimate atmosphere.  You may not get a chance to see these artists is such a setting anywhere else.  We will be offering a new and unique menu for the event.  When you purchase the $25 menu $5 will automatically go to the artist and if you choose the $35 menu then $15 will go to the artist and you will receive a signed copy of their CD or a special limited addition print signed by the artist.  Below is a list of the participating artists and musicians.  As outlined in a previous post, BKB is also starting their cooking class series the week of Winter Bites.  This is an exciting event that we are very proud to be offering and very excited to host.  Winter Bites is the perfect excuse to get out in the middle of a long cold January.  If you’re a fan of BKB this is an opportunity to try something that is not usually on the menu.  If you haven’t tried BKB yet, this is definitely the time to do so.

Yellow Wood Promotional Offer

October 30, 2009

It’s been quite awhile since my last post.  Five months to be exact.  Many things have kept me busy including participation in the Downtown Farmer’s Market, new initiatives in our catering department, and last but definitely not least having our baby.  little Wilson is doing well and things have finally seemed to calm down a bit.  I now have more time to tackle blogging again.  I’ve got many ideas for blog posts so keep tuning in for much more activity.

Supporting Local Arts & Music


I have been brewing over this idea for quite sometime now and am excited to finally get this off the ground.  We have been trying to support the local art scene since we opened but have had trouble finding ways to do it and also finding the time to do so.  We are always looking for artists to hang shows at our place and welcome anyone with posters etc to post them on our windows.  Today I’m announcing a special promo that supports one of Windsor’s great music groups.  Yellow Wood is unveiling their newest album later in November on the 21st.  Their CD release party promises to be a big event.  I’ve heard the album and can assure you it won’t disappoint.  In anticipation of this date  we are offering something very special, totally free.  Starting November 1 we will be giving away a digital download card, FREE, for everybody that comes in and eats at BKB after 4 o’clock.  All you have to do is spend more than $5.  It has 4 songs on it and can hold you over until you can by the CD on the 21st.  We’re doing this in partnership with Yellow Wood.  They are great guys and supportive customers and when I ran the idea by them of doing combos with music specials they jumped on the opportunity and were willing to offer their cards for promotion.  If you know Yellow Wood and like their stuff this is a great chance to get a free teaser of the great forthcoming album.  If you haven’t heard of Yellow Wood, well this is a great chance to get to hear a bit of their stuff.  So come on in to eat anytime this month after 4pm and receive a free download card from Yellow Wood. Simply ask the person at the counter about the offer.  We would like to give it to people that actually want to hear it.  Quantities are limited and the offer will expire when we run out of cards so don’t wait too long.  Here’s all the pertinent links and info to help you get to know one of the areas most talented bands.  Take the time to peruse these sites well.  They know how to keep in touch with their fans.  Follow the links to the Facebook page, their twitter updates, their livestream channel and their Youtube channel.  These guys know their shit.  Music nerds for sure. I know they’ll take that as a compliment as its meant.




A side note….. any artist or musician looking to hang their work or participate in some sort of cross promotion please stop in anytime to chat.  we welc0me the opportunity to work with anybody helping promote and share their work.  message me here or stop in.
